Join Portland’s Surfrider Foundation volunteers for the Northside Green Streets! Green Streets is a partnership between the City of Portland and the local Surfrider chapter that aims to keep our streets clean and our local bioswales healthy. Bioswales are those cool mini wetland garden thingies cut into the edge of many streets in town. Our Green Street Stewards, volunteer to clean up litter out of these swales and along the side of the road. This keeps litter out of our local watersheds, and since everything flows downstream, keeps litter out of our oceans. It’s a great way to act locally, and make impacts globally! The Surfrider Crew leader will make this volunteer event a fun night to remember, with some cool tunes and sweet treats. Come join us as we work together to keep our waterways clean.

Driven by San Francisco DJ/Producer duo Delachaux and The Klown, Trapeze has been christened as the official lightning rod of the West Coast-underground's burgeoning electro-swing cult and features a parade of DJs, dancers and demimondes with a cheeky, bass heavy taste for vintage, old world wonder that's been spliced, diced and hot-wired on tomorrow's sonic dope. Recently heralded by the SF Examiner, LA Weekly and Insomniac Magazine as one of underground dance music's most innovative directions, Trapeze continues to ambush swelling audiences with some of the most uniquely refreshing sights and sounds in contemporary nightlife.’ - Beatport ‘The place went NUTS…’ – Insomniac Magazine 'The crowd itself was a show' - LA Splash Magazine 'Trapeze feels like Betty Boop threw an acid party' SFWeekly http://trapezeworldwide.com https://www.facebook.com/events/1757157457902633/

When Shakespeare originally penned and performed his plays, theatrical practices were very different than modern audiences are accustomed to. First Folio editions of Shakespeare's plays include all the cues an actor needs to perform his or her role without rehearsal. This allows the truest reaction to the story as it progresses, and lends a much more immediate, organic and improvisational feel to the performances.Come prepared to cheer, boo, and generally reply (as a group) to what you're seeing onstage - the OPS actors thrive on it!

On Saturday July 16th a meeting was held to discuss how to keep building off of the momentum and inspiration for change motivated in Bernie Sander's campaign for presidency. With a massive turn out of over 150 people, it's clear the Political Revolution is not over. We heard from Green Party Member Jill Stein and Kshama Sawant on carrying the movement on Beyond Bernie to continue the work of building movements and forming the base for a truly grassroots proworker antioppresive political power to represent our intrests and causes. The unDemocratic party has proven their loyalty to Wallstreet and the wealthiest elite in their offensive against Bernie's campaign. There can not be a Political Revolution in a counter revolutionary party! That is why we are rallying this Sunday the 24th at Shemanski Park (park blocks) at 2pm, during the DNC in solidarity with the People's rallies happening outside of the convention there! We will speak out against coporate control and corrupt politics. We will rally for real change in society, for socialism, equity for all! We called for a movement to build a party of the 99% and reject the corporate Wallstreet agenda represented in the Democratic Party establishment, to be a real fighting force and viable alternative to the dangerous growing trend of Right wing populism. We know that a Hillary Clinton and her financiers are what will throw fuel on the fire of a raging blaze being stoked by the Right wing agenda and bigotted populists like Trump. We need our own representation to fight the root cause of the crises in our society. We must mobilize, organize, and build movements for the masses. Together we have the power. Bernie has said it is not about him, it's about us. Lets take what we have gathered from our discussion the streets and take action. By showing up and turning out we can connect and build on this energy and passion. Join us to rally for the causes we believe in, organize to build our movements, and create a fighting party of the 99%! Bring signs, chants, morale! Please share and invite your friends! We want to make this huge. We need to show the DNC and rest of the establishment that we are NOT going to stay silent. They do not represent us! We are taking this into our own hands. https://www.facebook.com/events/1104042309666412/

As you may have heard, big changes are afoot here at the Bicycle Transportation Alliance and we want you to be a part of it! Our new mission focuses on advocating for complete streets that ensure everyone can get to where they need to go safely. Residents in every community, regardless of ability and income, deserve the opportunity to walk to school, take transit to medical appointments, and bike to work. Our promise to our members is that our new mission will only bring stronger resources to the bicycling movement that will allow it to grow. We will never give up on bicycling infrastructure when advocating for complete and healthy streets. Instead, we will seek win/win/win design. We want to hear from you! Please join us on for a listening session. BTA staff and board will be available to hear your thoughts on our mission expansion and to answer any questions you have.  More info on our mission expansion- https://btaoregon.org/2016/06/big-news-were-expanding-our-mission-and-adding-a-political-arm/

Do you find it hard to say no? Does it seem unfriendly, even unspiritual? Holding firm boundaries can be very difficult. But it’s an essential practice for anyone seeking to break out of their comfort zone. On July 29, Paul Schroeder (MDiv) and Susanna Rempel (MSW, MPH) of New City Initiative will offer a lunchtime mini-seminar on “Intentional Welcoming” at 1st Congregational UCC Church in downtown Portland. The seminar will take place from 11:30 AM – 1 PM. The seminar will offer simple, practical tools you can start using right away to help you say no when you mean to so you can say yes when you really want to. Lunch will be provided by New City Kitchen, a social enterprise offering training and employment opportunity to people looking for a second chance in the workforce. Registration cost covers lunch. Paul Schroeder and Susanna Rempel are the Executive Director and Associate Director of New City Initiative, a nonprofit organization in Portland that fosters communities where all people can achieve their full human potential. Heartfelt Listening is one of the six spiritual practices New City uses to instigate personal change and community transformation. https://www.facebook.com/events/1722751801347215/

Giving our youth a platform with which they may individually and collectively share their hearts through the preforming arts...and invite the entire city in, to drink deeply of the powerful P.E.A.C.E, unity and community our youth have been empowered to create! With the hope that each attendee may leave this space with at least a seed, a little peice of that P.E.A.C.E, that they might be inspired, to carry it forward in thier own lives... Fa Real

At VBC 2016, we embarked on a journey of weaving together, asking questions to explore what it will truly take to confront oppression. There are no easy answers or solutions, but what was clear is that these conversations must continue. With recent events around the country, the deaths of Alton Sterling, Philando Castile, the Dallas 5, and so many more over the years, we are a nation rocked with grief, in all its many phases and stages, including denial, resistance, and deep mourning. Hearts tender from scars ripped open reveal the weeping wounds of this nation. “Things are not getting worse, they are getting uncovered. We must hold each other tight & continue to pull back the veil.” Let us come together and hold each other tight as we hear each other’s voices, songs, poetry, and words. Let us feel each other’s sadness, grief, anger, rage, and unfounded hope. Let us speak, cry, hug, and dance. Together. We continue to ask the question of what will it take for us to weave together as community across the many ways we have been divided against each other, and within ourselves, to confront the oppression that is intended to keep us separate. This history etched into our bones will not define us, but inform us. This painted skin we wear will be seen for what it is, skin deep. This life we are living is ours. We are the keys that will unlock our future. Together we will be as relentless as the ocean waves crashing upon the shores to reshape the landscape of our lives, to advance justice that we may know peace. Join us in Weaving Together… Holladay Park NE Portland 4 – 7 pm 3:30p – Gather Together 4:00p – Opening Circle 4:20p – Community Heart Share and Speak Out 4:50p – Small Group Rap Sessions 5:15p – Collective Harvest 5:30p – Community Heart Share and Speak Out 6:00p – Closing Circle 6:30p – Clean-up ~*~*~ Flow of the schedule may change ~*~*~ *** Portions of the evening will be Live Streamed *** You are invited to bring a picnic and share in food together. Please, no alcohol. We are gathering in peace and love, with honesty and courage. We are weaving together. We are sharing our hearts and challenging our minds. We are naming our experience and being witnessed. We are creating a safe space for the full expression of our humanity. We are going on a journey of deep listening, of being in connection with each other, of sitting in the fire of discontent and not turning away. We are inviting an exploration to see where this question we have asked will lead us – What Will it Take for Us to Weave Together to Confront Oppression? Let’s release any expectations or attachments to how far we travel, what the terrain will look like, or the specific ground we will cover. More than anything, people need to be heard, with deep listening, full presence, and an openness to step outside of our beliefs, our boxes, and our comfort zones. The request is that we suspend judgment, allow for difference, and invite vulnerability. Base assumptions we are working from: ~ Racism, sexism, & classism are real and woven into our human experience in modern times ~ This ism schism is intrinsically connected to a "power over" belief system ~ The effects of colonialism are still playing out today ~ Life as it has been must change ~ People joining together will be powerful in creating meaningful change …Join us… Brought to you by City Repair/VBC, Don’t Shoot PDX, and Speaking the Unspeakable® https://www.facebook.com/events/260773790970192/

It’s election time and we need to look at candidates but also at our electoral system – how it works, who votes, and whether we are encouraged to participate in the democratic process. This workshop covers voter fraud, voting rights, alternative election options, methods of financing campaigns [PACs, 527s, 501C(4)] and more. Might there be adjustments to our electoral process that would make it more effective and democratic? This is a non-partisan workshop.

As you may have heard, big changes are afoot here at the Bicycle Transportation Alliance and we want you to be a part of it! Our new mission focuses on advocating for complete streets that ensure everyone can get to where they need to go safely. Residents in every community, regardless of ability and income, deserve the opportunity to walk to school, take transit to medical appointments, and bike to work. Our promise to our members is that our new mission will only bring stronger resources to the bicycling movement that will allow it to grow. We will never give up on bicycling infrastructure when advocating for complete and healthy streets. Instead, we will seek win/win/win design. We want to hear from you! Please join us on for a listening session. BTA staff and board will be available to hear your thoughts on our mission expansion and to answer any questions you have.  More info on our mission expansion- https://btaoregon.org/2016/06/big-news-were-expanding-our-mission-and-adding-a-political-arm/

Take a fantastic musical adventure with an out-of-this-world car that flies through the air and sails the seas. Based on the beloved 1968 film version of Ian Fleming’s children’s book, and featuring an unforgettable score by the Sherman Brothers (Mary Poppins), Chitty Chitty Bang Bang is one family friendly blockbuster that audiences will find “Truly Scrumptious”. An eccentric inventor, Caractacus Potts sets about restoring an old race car from a scrap heap with the help of his children Jeremy and Jemima. They soon discover the car has magical properties including the ability to float and take flight. Trouble occurs when the evil Baron Bomburst desires the magic car for himself. The family joins forces with Truly Scrumptious and batty Grandpa Potts to outwit the dastardly Baron and Baroness and their villainous henchman, the Child Catcher. Filled with amazing stage spectacle and unforgettable songs, including the Academy Award nominated title song, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang is a high-flying fun-filled adventure for the entire family.

TICKETS: http://www.eventbrite.com/e/the-social-pitch-tickets-24580110773 Hatch Innovation is proud to present The Social Pitch (formerly Hatch Soup).  Here's how it works: People with great, early-stage ideas (projects or startups) that will provide lasting benefit to their community submit applications, and we pick five of them to present their ideas on Sunday, August 7, 2016. Then, community members buy tickets to attend, which gets each attendee a bowl of hot soup and delicious bread, and (perhaps most importantly) a vote. After the five presentations, the attendees vote, and the project with the most votes takes away all of the money from ticket sales to make their project a reality. There is also plenty of time for networking and discussion - this is truly a positive and collaborative experience. In addition, all presenters get a three-month Hatch membership to work on their ideas. An alternative funding model for community good, Hatch:Soup provides citizens with an opportunity to receive funding and complete projects. Applicants Applicants answer application questions when they buy a ticket.  Applications are due by June 22, 2016.   Finalists If you're selected, you'll be notified by June 23, 2016. You'll be asked to prepare a five minute presentation with three slides, answering these questions: 1) Who are you? 2) What is the problem you are trying to solve? 3) How will your project solve it? And here's the catch: the 3 slides must be images only. No text. Show people what you're talking about! You'll be asked to send through the presentation slides to us, and also to bring along any materials that may help your case. Finalist are strongly encouraged to attend The Pitch Clinic on August 5th from 6:30pm-7:30pm, at Hatch.  Finalist will receive help with their presentation and slideshow at the clinic.  Please bring your presentation, slides, and ideas to the clinic. Attendees Your ticket price gets you a delicious bowl of soup and a vote. At the end of the afternoon, after hearing the presentations and a short Q&A session, ballots are counted, and the project with the most votes receives the money collected from ticket sales.  Things to Know: Is my project right for The Social Pitch? The three main criteria for selection are 1) That your idea/project/startup helps your community (or someone else's community), 2) That it provides lasting change, and 3) That it is currently in an early stage. How do we define early stage? Well, tell us if $500 - $1500 would make a difference to your idea. If that sounds like peanuts, then you're probably not right for Hatch:Soup. If you've already raised all the cash you need and want a platform to tell people about your idea - it's also not a good fit. We're looking for people who need some small seed funding for a tangible and impactful project. Can I apply to be a presenter if I don't live in Portland? Unfortunately, no. In the past, people living outside of Portland proper were at a disadvantage because their supporters were not able to attend the event (and vote).  Furthermore, the Hatch videographers found it logistically difficult to film projects taking place outside of Portland. But absolutely anyone can attend the event.  What is the Pitch Clinic? This is an amazing opportunity for the five finalists to get feedback about their presentation.  The Pitch Clinic is a one-hour session led by the Program Manager of the Sustainable Valley Technology Group, Rosetta Shaw. If you are selected to be a finalist, we strongly encourage you attend, although it is not mandatory. What if I'm not selected to present? If you're not selected, all is not lost. You still have a ticket to attend! At the event, you can learn from others, get a feel for what works, and also network with the community. You'll make contacts who can help you grow your idea, and using your one-day membership, you can see how Hatch helps social entrepreneurs thrive. Are there ID requirements or an age limit to enter the event? There are no age requirements to attend or apply to present at The Social Pitch. What are my transport/parking options getting to the event? There is abundant on-street parking in the surrounding neighborhood.  Where can I contact the organizer with any questions? Email lex@hatchthefuture.org if you have any questions.   Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event? Nope - this is the digital age. We'd actually prefer if you didn't print them out!

It’s election time and we need to look at candidates but also at our electoral system – how it works, who votes, and whether we are encouraged to participate in the democratic process. This workshop covers voter fraud, voting rights, alternative election options, methods of financing campaigns [PACs, 527s, 501C(4)] and more. Might there be adjustments to our electoral process that would make it more effective and democratic? This is a non-partisan workshop.

**FREE Shakespeare in the Park** Original Practice Shakespeare Festival is dedicated to bringing a new style of Shakespearean performance to the Portland area by reviving the old. When Shakespeare originally penned and performed his plays, theatrical practices were very different than modern audiences are accustomed to. First Folio editions of Shakespeare's plays include all the cues an actor needs to perform his or her role without rehearsal. This allows the truest reaction to the story as it progresses, and lends a much more immediate, organic and improvisational feel to the performances.Come prepared to cheer, boo, and generally reply (as a group) to what you're seeing onstage - the OPS actors thrive on it!

Samantha Crain and Matthew Milia bring an intimate performance to Mission Theater on August 20th, 2016. The show will be a unique blend of storytelling, song, live readings, and collaboration.Samantha will be drawing from her lengthy discography of songs with expansive melodies that veer off in unpredictable directions and with lyrics that explore conflicting emotions with uncommon insight and compassion. She has a jazz singer’s phrasing, often breaking words into rhythmic fragments that land before and after the beat, stretching syllables or adding grace notes to uncover hidden nuances in her lyrics. She incorporates sometimes-comedic storytelling and personal interaction with the audience. Matthew also will perform many pieces from the Frontier Ruckus catalog, as well as, never before heard B-sides and rarities. He will travel through these densely worded sermons with a warbled voice that is fragile and full all at once.

The Depressed Cake Shop is a different kind of cake shop. It’s a one day pop-up bakery to raise awareness of mental illness through the sale of special cakes, cupcakes, cookies, and other treats donated by local bakers. The baked goods are gray on the outside and sometimes colored on the inside to symbolize hope – all to encourage conversation about mental health issues, we all know someone who is struggling. The Depressed Cake Shop offers a unique platform to talk about mental illness. With 1 in 5 people affected by some type of mental health issue, we all know someone. Whether it’s a family member, friend, or co-worker, we’re all touched by it. Baby Blues Connection focuses on providing free support for mothers and families coping with perinatal mood disorders- depression, anxiety, stress related to welcoming a child. “We’re always working to reduce stigma and create a dialogue where parents can express - in a supportive and non-judgmental environment - exactly how they are feeling without shame or blame,” said Angie Fitzpatrick, Executive Director of Baby Blues Connection. “We’ve partnered with Depressed Cake Shop, a worldwide grassroots movement to raise awareness about our common struggles. No one should suffer alone, be it from Postpartum Depression or any other mental health condition.” The Depressed Cake Shop started in the UK in 2013 and has since become a worldwide grassroots collective with Depressed Cake Shops popping up all over the world.

Join us for an intensive clinic concerning Oregon bicycle and pedestrian laws, insurance information, and what to do if you’re in a crash. Ray Thomas literally wrote the book on Oregon's bike-related laws. It's called "Pedal Power" and all attendees of his 60-minute clinic receive a free copy. Legal Clinics are in conjunction with Swason, Thomas, Coon, and Newton.

Join us in speaking up for people ­focused transportation in Oregon. Oregon needs to adopt a transportation package that reflects the priorities of Oregonians. Safe routes for walking and bicycling and plenty of convenient transit options benefit Oregon communities. Our neighbors can get to their jobs, children can walk and bike safely to and from school, drivers face less congestion on the roads, and the air is easier to breathe. If quality transportation in Oregon is important to you, join us on September 23 in Salem for an important public hearing. We need to show lawmakers that this issue is important to us. ** After you RSVP here=> http://bit.ly/25HOGtj you will hear from organizers with more information. ** Thank you for helping us ensure Oregon is spending our money wisely on a modern transportation system that provides options to all of our community members!https://www.facebook.com/RenewOregon/events# https://www.facebook.com/events/851409781669887/

Screening of GAINING GROUND, a new documentary film on food justice. GAINING GROUND tells personal stories of rural and urban farmers making extraordinary changes to feed their local communities sustainably grown produce and grains. The documentary interweaves the lives of urban farmer-activists in inner city Richmond, California; a small family farm in rural Oregon converting from a commodity dairy to a sustainably grown produce farm; and a large commodity grass seed and Asian wheat farm in the Willamette Valley transitioning to growing organic grains. The film personalizes issues of class, gender, race and environmental justice, rooting them within the narratives of compelling individuals. While the movie is sober about the obstacles to creating change, it points the way toward hope. For more information go to: mediaprojectonline.org

“Within These Walls” is an evening of thought-provoking presentation and conversation focused on the nature of solitary confinement, and it’s prevalence in the American prison system. This evening is the template for an evening to be presented in Portland, Oregon in late September of 2016. The evening will consist of two parts, performance and discussion. Performance will be a presentation of works performed by and donated by inmates around the theme of solitary confinement. Discussion will include members of the Oregon Department of Corrections, a state legislator, prison chaplains, and former inmates who have had personal experience with Solitary Confinement, possibly including Albert Woodfox, of the Angola Three (Still to be confirmed). We are already working on this event with Carlos Chavez and the Prison Pipeline program, but would love greater KBOO involvement.
